This is my attempt of a comparison between the Usd carbon II and the Usd carbon free. Im not going to state much facts but talk about my personal opinion and experience.
Yours obviously might differ but this might help you if youre considering buying a carbon II or an carbon free.

USD Carbon 3 Don Bambrick Pro Skates
Available on pre-order. Release: first week of October
Quoting Don Bambrick:
The Bambrick Carbon 3 is just as light and maneuverable as the Carbon 2′s. You still have the option to heat mold to your skate giving you the perfect fit.
My skate has a higher liner in the ankle area giving more support and comfort. My skate is a dark blue with black accented leather with hints of gold and red.
I am very happy with how they came out and the added ankle support is a nice improvement. If you liked the Carbon 2′s you will surely love the Carbon 3′s.
The Carbon 2 skate from USD continues to blow up all over the scene as aggressive’s most advanced and best performing skate. The highest of high quality materials also converted the Carbon 2 into the market’s most exclusive boot due to its price.
At USD we decided to develop a new compound that would mimic the Carbon feel at a lower price, allowing more skaters to enjoy the Carbon revolution.
The Carbon Free boot has been designed with a combination of Carbon, Fibreglass and Nylon which has allowed us to create the closest feel to Carbon while enabling us to lower the price and make it available for more people to enjoy this new feeling that everyone is talking about.
The Carbon Free Richie Eisler skate – tried and tested by the man himself – comes with US Poured UC Pro wheels (often considered the world’s best wheels) and the brand new Kizer 4 Fluid frame, making it by far one of the best quality pro boot setups ever released on the aggressive market.
So you have some of the best performing skates ever produced, but you want to adjust them to your feet for an even closer fit? Here’s how to do it!
Important: Please be careful when handling the oven and heated skates. Use protective gloves where possible and carry out procedure under the supervision of an adult.

The first soft boot skate I can skate, and I like. – Fish.
They’re so comfy, I skated all day and still 720′d a gap at midnight. – SK.
Heat molding them is the sh*t! And you can’t do that with any other skate. – Don.
First of all I have to say that this review is based on my personal experiences and opinions. I know it sounds really positive but that´s just because I`m seriously in love with the carbon II.
As I skated the deshi carbon, several Usd carbons, a prototype of the carbon II and now the carbon II white I thought some people might be interested in what I have to say about the skate.
One day I received a parcle from Usd. I thought it was the new clothing line and I was right. But the parcle also contained a pair of carbon II`s. I don`t know if the skate weights even less than the “old” carbons but it`s defninitely extremely light. [...]
